A Fort Pierce woman evoked the president when shouting expletives at police, who were trying to prevent her from fighting juveniles on a school bus over a $12 debt.

Tamaria Epps, 20, yelled "F*ck you (N-word). You can't tell me what to do. Obama owns this mother*cker!" before spilling Budweiser on officers, according to a Fort Pierce Police incident report. It is unclear what Epps thought Obama owned.

Officers were called to the school bus on April 19 after reports of an altercation. Epps had reportedly showed up to the school bus stop to assist an acquaintance who was called to protect her sister when two 16-year-olds began throwing fists over a debt for hair care services.

The teen with the debt told police that the other girl was going to have her family "jump her" at the bus stop if she didn't provided the $12 she owed. So she called her sister for backup, who brought along Epps.

As police tried to deescalate the fight, they repeatedly asked Epps to stop using profanity in front of the teens on the school bus. Epps responded with "F*ck all y'all. Y'all can't do shit to me."

Epps was arrested for breach of peace and taken to St. Lucie County Jail. The teens decided not to pursue charges and neither required any medical treatment.
